First, I want to thank Joey Delgado on YouTube for giving me ideas: https://youtu.be/8O2wYLJpwoo

Also a big thank you to the Tech Buyer's Guru on YouTube! He walks you through, step-by-step how to build. I didn't need all of his advice personally but I loved the videos he made because he used the same motherboard as me. The first video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDO5E0sBzzQ&list=PLivn3nj0BBi1sfeUgIZH-mC2jLCMEHCgU&index=19&t=0s
Update: I had to buy a bigger battery back-up. The CyberPower one I had wasn't big enough and kept shutting down. Now I have the APC Performance Series 1350VA/810Watts one and it works great. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider on 4K Ultra settings pushes the level to 80% on the battery backup, not 100% like with the smaller unit I had. To be fair to CyberPower, they have a larger unit as well, the APC one was on sale at Best Buy for $159.
Update again: I had to replace my power supply with a new one, it's a Corsair HX850i. I also installed an EVGA NuAudio soundcard and am rocking a Klipsch speaker setup with the Klipsch R-51PM Powered Bluetooth Speakers and a Klipsch R-120SW Subwoofer. You might think it's ridiculous to spend $1000 on a soundcard and speakers, but if you love premium sound for music and games (and movies) you would really love my setup. Battlefield 5 sounds really amazing and so does everything else! Plus, when you buy good speakers, they last alot longer, in my opinion.
I built this to be an awesome gaming/everything pc, and it works great! I am really pleased with the way it works. It is so fast! I didn't have any problems on this build except the usual (for my dyslexic, Gemini-self) things like putting fans or RGB in what you think is perfect, only to have to take it out and re-do it, but those things happen. I am not completely happy with my Cable Mod cables, they are too flimsy. I will get ParaCord ones later, or at least better ones. I replaced the H150i's fans with Corsair LL120 RGB fans. I added Phanteks Halos to all the case fans (four 140mm Phanteks fans) and I added the Phanteks Digital RGB Starter Kit which has a hub for the Halos and two Digital RGB Light Strips. To complete the build, I added a Funko POP! Deadpool. Then added a second Deadpool Funko.
I do actually have an old 1TB Seagate hard drive mounted in the bottom, out of sight. I also have a NexStar DX USB 3.0 External Enclosure for SATA Blu-Ray/CD/DVD Drive for my old BD/DVD Burner.
I also have a CORSAIR MM800 Polaris RGB Mouse Pad, which is cool but I need a new desk to use it properly because I tend to move my mouse down to the keyboard tray.
I'm going to get a different desk but if I spend anymore money right now, my wife's head is going to explode! I still think my hobby is better than hers! Who needs 10 Coach purses, anyway? :-)
As for the cost, you don't have to get a $2000 monitor. I needed to upgrade mine anyway.
In one of the posts I mention that my Corsair LL120 RGB wasn't working. I unplugged the hub and reconnected it (PC unplugged from AC, of course) and then the Corsair iCUE software was able to see them again. So now they are working mostly fine but the third fan doesn't light up on the outer edge. Will have to keep playing with that software.
UPDATE: I fixed that issue, I didn't have the "Three Fans Are Connected" selected in the drop-down menu for the Lightning Node Pro in the iCue software.
